Officers have found the bodies of all six Houston family members who were traveling in a van when it was swept off a Houston bridge and into a storm-ravaged bayou.
It plunged into about four feet of floodwaters on Sunday and and was dragged down river as the Saldivar family tried to escape, the sheriff said.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office also confirmed that deputies rescued Sammy Saldivar on Sunday from Greens Bayou.
"It's so unfair", the children's aunt through marriage, Esmeralda Saldivar, told NBC News.
The van sank in the flood, leaving driver Sammy Saldivar the lone survivor. "He loved anything Army and playing video games", she said of her grandchildren.
As CNN reports, grandmother Virginia Saldivar lived across the street from the children and watched them grow.
Samuel Saldivar climbed out of the driver-side window but the van's sliding door was partially submerged and would not open, Virginia Saldivar said. "The water picked the van up, and it was just floating after that", Ric said. When they pulled the van out, four more bodies including those of a 16-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy and an 8-year-old boy, were found inside.
On Wednesday, as waters receded, sheriff's deputies were able to get closer to the van.

"Sammy said, 'Well, maybe I should go back, ' " Ric said.
Ric Saldivar called his brother and told him to bring the family members to his house on higher ground.
Harvey weakened to a tropical depression on Wednesday night, the US National Hurricane Center said, but warned that "catastrophic and life threatening flooding will continue in and around Houston, Beaumont/Port Arthur, eastward into southwest Louisiana for the rest of the week". "Him and mom and dad were under water already".
Family and friends of the Saldivar family have stepped up to help them offset funeral costs.
The children's mother had been trying to get a boat ride so she could go to the bayou herself and look for them.
"Finding my babies", she said, "that's my ultimate goal". "I just keep thinking no matter how bad I feel, I know my brother Sammy is that much worse because he was right there and couldn't do nothing about it".
More than 30 people have died, including a Houston police officer who drowned in his vehicle while driving to work.
